Even More Books

Sure-thing Options Trading: A Money-Making Guide to the New Listed Stock and Commodity Options Markets  This is a very good book about options and it's cheap, too.  Options are advanced, so I don't recommend you dive into them until you understand stocks first.  But know this:  buying options is like buying hope and it can be a real sucker's play.  Be very careful with them, they are highly leveraged. 

Rule Breakers, Rule Makers -- A very good book about how Wall Street rewards market leaders, until they fall. 

Technical Analysis from A to Z -- is like a reference book at technical indicators with excellent explanations.  I've met Steve Achelis and he's written a great book. 

The Options Course is excellent -- gives more in-depth material on options for the advanced trader.  Don't do options if you're a newbie.

Beating the Street is the 2nd in the series by Peter Lynch.  Great material but start with his other book first, One Up on Wall Street.
